The only reason this is a MAX title is so they can say “d***” and have alot of naked people running around.

There’s no other reason for it to be a MAX title. I suppose the relationship between Bob and the security guard is pushing it and probably wouldn’t have happened in non-MAX title.

But really? What’s the point of having a Deadpool MAX title if Deadpool, himself, doesn’t do anything MAX-worthy?

Deadpool’s barely in this issue. It’s mostly Bob talking about the mission and spending time with Bruno. Deadpool shows up at the beginning and then at the end. That’s it. The issue is mostly about Bob talking with his bosses about the job and how Deadpool screwed it up and Bob has to fix it, well taking it up the ass literally.

The job is to take down the Maggia boss Hammerhead. The MAX allows Lapham to stretch the craziness of Hammerheads paranoia, which is contrary to Hammerhead’s other appearances. MAX is out of continuity so it doesn’t conflict with Hammerhead’s appearance in the Heroic Age: 1 Month 2 Live mini-series.

The story is more complex then it has to be. I really don’t see the need for this series. It’s not Lapham’s best work, and it’s not a Deadpool story.

I’ve never been a fan of Baker’s art. Nothing about this issue makes me change my mind. If you’re a fan of Bakers work then you’ll enjoy it. If you’re not a fan, then you won’t like it.

Not funny, Deadpool barely makes an appearance, barely any reason to make it a MAX, barely any grade.
